           HONORING THE WESTERN HERITAGE OF COLORADO SPRINGS

                                 ______
                                 

                           HON. DOUG LAMBORN

                              of colorado

                    in the house of representatives

                         Tuesday, June 20, 2017

  Mr. LAMBORN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the proud and 
important Western Heritage of Colorado Springs.
  Whether it is the 81st Western Street Breakfast, the 77th Annual 
Pikes Peak of Bust Rodeo, or the 68th Pikes Peak Range Ride, our 
Colorado Springs community has supported this heritage for many 
generations. I would also like to note that the proceeds from these 
events go to supporting our brave men and women in uniform at our five 
local military installations.
  If you are one of the 10,000 people at the Street Breakfast, the many 
thousands at the Rodeo, or the two hundred plus Range Riders, you are 
taking part in a long and commendable tradition. And, with your 
continued enthusiastic support, it's one I know will last forever.
  Thank you so much to the staffers, board members, and dedicated 
volunteers who make each of these events possible. Each June and July 
Colorado Springs shows the entire world what is so special about the 
heritage of the West.

                          ____________________
